No. First install the 1.2.3 SVN.
See the instructions here:

I'd recommend the following procedure:
old: svnadmin recover
old: svnadmin dump path/to/repo > dumpfile
new: svnadmin create path/to/converted/repo
new: svnadmin load path/to/converted/repo < dumpfile

That way you will get a repository based on FSFS instead of BDB, which
means you won't have upgrade problems in the future.
